Critical Sections and Resiliency of MVFC Freight Projects

The goal of this project is to identify critical nodes and sections, including intermodal connectors, along the I-35, I-70, I-80, I-90, and I-94 freight corridors within the Mississippi Valley Freight Coalition (MVFC) region that are most vulnerable to disruption and lack adequate alternate route freight capacity. The information provided will be in the form of recommendations of segments in need of enhancement and strategies for navigating traffic on to alternate routes in times of need. This project will identify and create an inventory of critical sections of the network along the proposed Corridors. The critical sections are where the greatest traffic delays would be experienced.
